Brittney Griner’s ordeal continues. The 31-year-old U.S. base, which has been arrested in Moscow since February, will remain in pre-trial detention until June 18, according to Russian news agency TASS.
Two-time Olympic champion Brittney Griner took a WNBA break to compete for the Russian championship. However, on his way back to the United States, he was stopped by the port authorities on suspicion of drug trafficking, which led to an arrest warrant.
If the charge is confirmed, the player can face up to 10 years in prison.
